Responding to figures* from the Department for Communities and Local Government which show that just seven per cent of all planning applications make use of section 106 agreements in 2003-04, Adam Sampson, director of Shelter, said:

'Local councils must make use of Section 106 wherever possible to provide much-needed affordable housing for their local communities.

'But the full potential of these agreements will never be realised unless council negotiators have the skills and confidence to achieve the best deals.

'Government and local councils must work together to ensure that tailored support and training is made available to ensure Section 106 agreements deliver for local people.'
